Kimberley. – The case against a minor, who is accused of murdering Deon, Christel and Marthella Steenkamp on their farm Naauwhoek near Griekwastad in 2012, will resume in the Northern Cape High Court in Kimberley today.

The boy also faces charges of rape and defeating the ends of justice. The case was postponed in December last year after the boy fired his legal team. His new lawyer, Riaan Bode, asked for the postponement.

The accused, who was fifteen years old when the incident took place, has pleaded not guilty to all charges.
